[DML] Re: Brakes broke..

You have to be careful when using a third-party cross reference. They
may combine the use of one part to stretch it's use over other
applications. Cardone may be saying the 50/50 cylinder can be used in
the 37/63 application to reduce inventory or maybe the 37/63 is no
longer a stocked part so to cover the app they substitute the 50/50
one. This is why when you go to the auto store many times a
crossed/over part is not correct. It was and still is a terrible
problem with vacuum tube substitution. Cross/overs many times won't
work in certain applications and they never try them all to test it. 
 You should not have to remove the caliper to bleed it. In fact if you
do remove it you MUST use a vacuum method to bleed it or you will blow
the piston out. Since you have done an engine conversion you may have
even more of a weight distribution issue. In your case it may matter
even more to have the 37/63 ratio if you ended up with more weight in
the rear. Don't worry about the cylinder. Use the 50/50 master and
just put an adjustable proportioning valve in. Done all the time (on
other makes). Maybe you want to do a front brake lock too so you can
spin the rear tires?
